BUFFALO, N.Y. – The very first HEATH Ice Cream Cake is here and right in time for July’s National Ice Cream Month and Ice Cream Day on July 21!

“HEATH is one of the most sought-after ingredient mix-ins at ice cream shops  across the country, so creating this new HEATH ice cream cake, the only one of its kind, is a product we know consumers will crave,” said Kimberly O’Brien, Shopper Marketing Manager, In-Store Bakery & Deli Division, Rich Products.

HEATH is a classic, American candy bar made with toffee, almonds and milk chocolate. The HEATH bar was invented in 1928 by brothers Bayard and Everett Heath from Robinson, Ill., and the candy bars are still manufactured in the same town where they got their start.
